I have a requirement wherein I need to change the way decimal place values are displayed
Currently my calculation yields double value .05 or -.03 which i want to represent something like this 1.05 or .97 respectively.
Let me know the best approach.

Do you just want to print the number plus one? Then just add 1 to the number before displaying it.
Or is your question about actually formatting numbers? There are several ways to do that; for example using class
, or by using System.out.printf():
double number = .05; System.out.printf("The number is: %.2f%n", number + 1.0);
